Hughes cruises for 8 innings as Yanks beat White Sox 4-2 to tie series

In the first inning of the game, Phil Hughes was off to an inauspicious start as he let 2 runs score and left the Yankees in a 2-0 hole. Since the first inning he had put 0’s up on the scoreboard as the Yankees were able to defeat the White Sox 4-2 to tie the series at 2 games apiece.

Phil Hughes after the rocky first inning in which he gave up 2 runs and 3 hits went 7 more innings giving up 0 runs and 3 hits. Hughes went 8 innings with 2 runs on 6 hits with 8 strikeouts. Rafael Soriano came in the 9th inning to seal the deal and give the Yankees their 1st victory in July.

In the 2nd inning, Raul Ibanez singled and Eric Chavez hit a 2 run homer which tied the game at 2. In the 3rd inning Robinson Cano hit a 2 run homer with Mark Teixeira on base which gave them the 4 runs they needed to beat the White Sox.

Now the Yankees head on their final road trip of the first half of the season as they play 3 games in Tampa and 4 games in Boston (2 games on Sunday due to a doubleheader). Tomorrow it will be Freddy Garcia vs. the Rays pitcher Matt more as Garcia auditions for the rotation spot while Andy Pettitte & CC Sabathia are out with injuries. First pitch will be at 7:05pm.
